Stephen Kelly Buddleia, watercolour, 81⁄4x113⁄4in. (21x30cm)

WWW.PAINTERS-ONLINE.CO.UK

Stephen Kelly’s working life has given him a keen eye for detail, but it is his clean and subtle use of colour that attracted me to this particular watercolour. Steve used the practical help of photography to good advantage, combining it with a refined sense of composition that doesn’t rely upon including everything he sees in the photo. If you would like to see more of Steve’s work, post a comment or upload your own images to our free online gallery, visit www.painters-online.co.uk

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the July issue of Leisure Painter, aimed at beginners and amateur painters. Subjects covered this month include landscapes, seascapes, urban scenes, portraits, wild and domesticated animals and birds, flowers and natural still lifes. We introduce a short series on painting buildings in pastel and there are also two new painting projects to try: learn how to simplify a busy harbour scene and paint a portrait of a roe deer. From techniques and colours for painting rain, puddles and reflections in acrylic and painting natural textures in watercolour to drawing exercises and step-by-step demonstrations for you to try, we aim to include something for everyone in each issue.
